The Sunday Post #70


The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to recap the past week, talk about next week, and share news. It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Date. I get to tell you what I’ve read recently.



On The Blog Last Week





On The Blog This Week


  • On Monday I review Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer.
  • On Tuesday I tell you why I read horror.
  • I don’t have posts written for Wednesday and Thursday yet, but I’ll try to get something up.



In My Reading Life


I’m still sick. That’s why I’m behind on reading and blogging. Last week, I read Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk and Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah. Up next is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.





In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Halloween decorations.
  2. I got my mail-in ballot. That means this election stuff is almost over. Then I won’t have to see campaign ads anymore.
  3. I’m still binge watching Game of Thrones.
  4. I think I may have written my last essay ever. No more essays. Ever. That sounds really strange.
  5. #TrumpBookReport. Twitter imagines how Trump would review famous books. The results are hilarious.




I hope you had a great week! See you around the blogosphere.

  1. Hope you feel better! And enjoy your new reads- Sleeping Giants was quite interesting, and Angel catbird. A cat/ owl hybrid? Hmm, that might be fun. :)

    I'll have to check out #TrumpBookReport.

    1. Thanks! A cat/owl hybrid is a pretty unusual combination. I hope I like the book.

    1. I didn’t like Life as We Knew it as much as I hoped I would. It wasn’t horrible, but I was underwhelmed.

    1. The writing style in Fight Club got on my nerves, but the book does give you a lot to think about.

  6. I did a bit of a binge session reading all the #TrumpBookReport tweets I could find...a bit of a break from all the mean-spirited campaign nuttiness...

  7. Yay on doing your last report and your elections 'almost' being done and dusted. We're even getting a lot of the news and memes over here, so I can't imagine what it's like there!

    Hope you're enjoying GOT. I left it too long after watching s1 to watch s2 so didn't remember anyone and so I ditched it.

    Hope you feel better soon!

I do a happy dance every time I get a comment. (You should be grateful that you’re not around to witness this dance. It’s truly horrifying.) Leave a link to your blog so I can visit you.
